You may be gone from your earthy home to your heavenly home with God, but you will never be forgotten.

Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day.” 2 Timothy 4: 7-8.

DADDY, I LOVED YOU WITH ALL MY HEART AND SOUL. I WILL MISS YOU BUT I KNOW YOU ARE IN HEAVEN WITH MOM, BUBBA AND THE REST OF YOUR FAMILY. YOU PASSED AT HOME WITH SAL & I BY YOURSELF AND THAT'S WHAT YOU WANTED. I WILL ALWAYS ENJOY YOUR MEMORIES AND LAUGHS WITH YOU. ESPECIALLY WHEN WE MOVED YOU HERE - YOU TURNED INTO THE BEST GARDNER OVER FLOWING WITH VEGETABLES AND HOT PEPPERS, ESPECIALLY YOUR MUSTARD GREENS. YOU HAD SAID FOR 3 YEARS NOW, AS YOU GOT OLDER, YOU JUST WANTED TO GO SEE MOMMA. WELL, YOU ARE THERE NOW. YOU WILL ALWAYS BE LOVED BY ALL OF US AND YOUR FRIENDS. YOU MAY BE GONE FROM THIS EARTH, BUT WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN. I WILL SEE ALL ON THE OTHER SIDE WITH YOUR ANGELS. LOVE FROM YOUR DAUGHTER, BECKY AND THE REST OF OUR FAMILY. I WILL MISS YOU EVERYDAY, BUT I WILL SEE YOU FLOATING IN THE PUFFY SKIES WATCHING OVER US AND GUIDING US AS YOU ALWAYS HAVE.
